Sparwood students shine at graduation
Sparwood secondary students celebrated the end of an era Saturday night.
Each of the 47 students that made up the grad class of 2013 proudly walked across the stage during the evening’s commencement ceremony. Following speeches by School Board Trustee Bev Bellina and District Superintendent Bendina Miller, scholarships and bursaries were presented to many of the hardworking students. Valedictorian Ty Hanlon gave a heartwarming address to his fellow students and even kept them entertained with a song. Marking her last year as principal at Sparwood Secondary School, Fran Kellington bid farewell to the class of 2013 and wrapped up the ceremony.
The festivities continued into the night with the annual dance and grand march.
